REPORTS AND COMMUNICATIONS FROM 
CITY OFFICERS. 



MAYOR. 



Appropriations for Sundry Positions, for Increases 
in Salaries, Etc. 

The Alayor submitted the following communication: 

S Office op the Mayor,) 

Chicago, April 25, 1924. J 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

CfENTLEiMEN — Sincc the Annual Appropriation Bill 
was amended in accordance with my veto message 



ami recDiiimcndalions on Api'il 1), l!)2'i, my attention 
lias liccn direi'Icd In ceiiaiii I'csiills that have fol- 
Inwcil wliicli arc nnl, entiri'ly in harmony witli the 
\ie\\s (ixpressed by nic in the said message. In a 
lew cases akso it has been found that the elimination 
nf posit inns l iiat were not a|)proi)riated for will 
injure llic service more liian was api)areiit at the 
lime llic ilcnppin;^ dT Ibesc positions was deter- 
niined upon. 

In llic limited lime at the disposal of tliose who 
sought to carry out iny ideas, as outlined in my 
message, it was impossiiile, to give the matf,ers that 
1 now speak of the consid(!ration they deservi'. As 
a whole, my intentions were fairly well covered by 
the scliedule prepared for me wliich was contained 
in my veto message — in fact, some of the things 
wbicli I now ask your honorable body to correct are 
due to a f-oo literal adherence to some of the minor 
things mentioned in my message, thereby overlooking 
some more important tilings embodied in the general 
plan I had in view and which was fully expressed 
therein. 

To illustrate more fully, I spoke of certain groups 
of low salaried employes whom I considered under- 
paid, mentioning particularly positions in the police 
and fire departments and in the various divisions of 
the clerical and engineering service. This was so 
interpreted that some other low salaried employes 
were cut, although it was not the intention to reduce 
their appropriations. 

I have therefore caused ordinances to be prepared 
which are designed to correct the deficiencies and 
inconsistencies of whicli I speak by making some ap- 
propriations from miscellaneous receipts from other 
sources than the tax levy. This practice is within 
the law as fixed by statute, and additional and sup- 
plemental appropriations of this kind are proper in 
case of emergency and for the purpose of correcting 
defects in the Annual Appropriation Bill. I present 
said ordinances herewith, and I ask for them the 
favorable consideration of your honorable body. 

Yours truly, 

(Signed) William E. Dever, 

Mayor. 

Unanimous consent was given to permit action on two 
ordinances submitted with the foregoing communica- 
tion without reference thereof to a committee. 

Alderman Woodhull moved to pass one of said ordi- 
nances, making sundry appropriations from Miscella- 
neous Receipts. 

The motion prevailed, by yeas and nays as follows: 

Yeas — Coughlin, Anderson, Schwartz, Eaton, Guern- 
sey, Woodhull, Meyering, Govier, Cross, Hogan, Kunst- 
mann, McDonough, O'Toole, Byrne, Moran, Ryan, Mc- 
Kinlay, Fick, Cepalv, Kostner, Arvey, Mendel, Touhy% 
Maypole, A. J. Horan, Clark, Adamkewicz, Smith, Pet- 
lak, Kaindl. Seif. Sievers, Mills, Adamowski, Tomczak, 
Jensen, Crowe, Albert, Wallace, Brieske, Nelson, Klinke, 
Link, Frankhauser, Pontow — 45. 

Nays — None.

The Mayor submitted the following communication, 
which was, together with Ihe communication trans- 
milled therewith, referred to the Committee on 
Finance: 

Office op the Mayor,] 
Chicago, April 25, 1924.) 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I attach hereto a communication 
from Hon. Morgan A. Collins, Superintendent of 
Police with a copy of a report to the Chief of the 
Bureau of Fire Prevention and Public Safety con- 
cerning the dangers existing in the barn now used 
by the mounted police, section of Traffic Division, 
located at 152 W. Illinois street. 

Imperatively necessary changes in the existing 
building will cost between $15, 000' and $20,000, and 
it is inadvisable to make this expenditure inasmuch 
as the City only has a further lease of one year on 
this property. It would seem to me that the sug- 
gestion made by Chief Collins that provision be 
made for the erection of a stable at Racine avenue 
and Monroe street upon City-owned property be 
given prompt and serious consideration. 

I respectfully suggest that the matter be referred 
to your Committee on Finance. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) William E. Dever, 

Mayor.

the purpose of this ordinance, levigated limestone, 
other levigated stone equivalent to levigated lime- 
stone for paving purposes, said Portland cement or 
the finely divided mineral matter self contained in 
the refined native solid asphalt. 

The refined asphalt used in making the asphalt 
cement for the mixture for the binder course and 
the mixture for the wearing course shall be obtained 
from crude, native solid asphalt, except as herein 
provided. If crude, native solid asphalt is used 
and requires refining, it shall be heated to a tem- 
perature of not over four hundred fifty (450) de- 
grees Fahrenheit until all water and light oils have 
been driven off. At least ninety-eight and one-half 
(98%) per cent of the bitumen contained in the 
said refined asphalt which is soluble in carbon 
disulphide shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra 
chloride. 

The refined asphalt used in making said asphalt 
cement may also be obtained by the straight reduc- 
tion of asphaltic petroleum until the refined asphalt 
has a consistency not softer than seven (7) milli- 
meters penetration and not harder than two and one- 
half (2%) millimeters penetration, the penetration 
being made with a No. 2 needle, weighted with one 
hundred (100) grams acting for five (5) seconds on 
the material at a temperature of seventy-seven (77) 
degrees Fahrenheit. Ninety-eight and one-half (98%) 
per cent of the said refined asphalt, so obtained, 
shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. When 
fifty (50) grams of said refined asphalt is heated in 
an uncovered tin box, five and one-half (5%) centi- 
meters in diameter and three and one-half (3%) 
centimeters in depth and is held at a temperature of 
three hundred twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit 
for five (5) hours, then it shall have lost not over two 
(2) per cent by w-eight and the penetration of the 
residue thus obtained shall be not less than one-

half of the penetration before such heating, said 
penetration being determined as herein prescribed. 
The said refined asphalt shall have a ductility of not 
less than sixty (60) centimeters at five (5) milli- 
meters penetration determined as herein prescribed, 
said ductility being determined by elongating a 
briquette, Dow form, of said refined asphalt at a 
uniform rate of five (5) centimeters per minute at 
a temperature of seventy-seven (77) degrees 
Fahrenheit. 

The flux used in making the asphalt cement shall 
be the residuum obtained by the straight reduction 
of crude petroleum, which flux shall be tested with 
and found suitable to the refined asphalt to be 
used. At least ninety-nine (99) per cent of said flux 
shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. The 
flux shall have a specific gravity of not less than 
ninety-four one-hundredths (.94) and not more than 
one and ten one-hundredths (1.10) at seventy-seven 
(77) degrees Fahrenheit as compared with water 
at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit, and when 
tested in a Cleveland Open Cup Oil Tester, it shall 
not flash below a temperature of three hun- 
dred eighty (380) degree Fahrenheit; and when 
fifty (50) grams of the said flux is heated 
in an uncovered tin box five and one-half (5%) 
centimeters in diameter and three and one- 
half (3%) centimeters is depth and is held at 
a temperature of three hundred twenty-five 
(325) degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) hours, then 
it shall not have lost over three (3) per cent by 
weight. The flux shall have a penetration of not 
less than thirty-five (35) millimeters, the penetration 
being made with a No. 2 needle weighted with fiftj 
(50) grams acting for one second, the material being 
tested at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. 

The asphalt cement used in the binder course and 
in the wearing course shall be made from one (1) 
of said refined asphalts or from a mixture of any two 
of said refined asphalts and said flux, if flux must be 
used, provided that the mixture of refined asphalts 
shall contain equal parts of each of the refined 
asphalts; and that the said asphalt cement shall 
contain not less than sixty (60) per cent by weight 
of refined asphalt or asphalts. The said asphalt 
cement shall be made by mixing and heating the 
said refined asphalt or asphalts and the said flux 
in a kettle at a temperature not lower than two 
hundred fifty (250) degrees Fahrenheit and not 
higher than three hundred fifty (350) degrees 
Fahrenheit. This mixture shall he thoroughly 
agitated when hot by steam, air or mechanical 
means until the said mixture has become homo- 
geneous. The said asphalt cement shall have a 
penetration, determined as herein prescribed, of not 
less than two and one-half (2%) millimeters and not 
more than seven (7) millimeters. When fifty (50) 
grams of said asphalt cement is heated in an uncover- 
ed tin box five and one-half (5%) centimeters in di- 
ameter and three and one-half (3%) centimeters in 
depth and is held at a temperature of three hundred 
twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) 
hours, then it shall have lost not more than three 
(3) per cent by weight, and the penetration, deter- 
mined as herein prescribed, shall be not less than 
one-half of the penetration before such heating. A 
briquette, Dow form, of the said asphalt cement of 
the consistency as used in this improvement shall 
have a ductility, determined as herein prescribed, 
of not less than twenty (20) centimeters. 

The mixture for the binder course shall be made 
by heating and intimately mixing the said limestone 
or other stone, the said sand or the said lime- 
stone screenings and the said asphalt cement. The 



said mixture shall contain by weight five (5) per 
cent of bitumen soluble in carbon disulphide; 
twenty-five (25) per cent of said sand or said lime- 
stone screenings and seventy (70) per cent of said 
limestone, or other stone. The said mixture shall 
be spread on the said concrete foundation, and 
while in a hot and plastic condition shall be rolled 
to an even surface with a self-propelled roller 
weighing not less then ten (10) tons. The said binder 
course after ultimate compression shall have a 
thickness of one and one-half (1%) inches, and the 
upper surface shall be parallel with and one and 
one-half (1%) inches below the upper surface of the 
finished pavement. 

The mixture for the wearing course shall be 
made by intimately mixing, while hot, the said sand, 
the said asphalt cement and the said levigated stone. 
The said sand and the said asphalt cement shall be 
heated separately to a temperature of not less than 
three hundred (300) degrees Fahrenheit, and the 
said levigated stone shall be intimately mixed with 
the said sand and then both shall be intimately mixed 
with the said asphalt cement. The said mixture 
shall contain, by weight, bitumen soluble in carbon 
disulphide eleven (11) per cent; said levigated stone 
fourteen (14) per cent; said sand which can pass an 
eighty (80) mesh sieve and cannot pass a two hun- 
dred (200) mesh sieve twenty-five (25) per cent; said 
sand which can pass a forty (40) mesh sieve and 
cannot pass an eighty (80) mesh sieve thirty-six 
(36) per cent; said sand which can pass a ten (10) 
mesh sieve and cannot pass a forty (40) mesh sieve 
twelve (12) per cent; said sand which can pass a 
four (4) mesh sieve and cannot pass a ten (10) 
mesh sieve two (2) per cent. The said mixture shall 
be spread at a temperature of not less than two 
hundred sixty (260) degrees Fahrenheit to an even 
surface and to such a depth that after ultimate com- 
pression, it shall have a thickness of one and one- 
half (IVs) inches. The wearing course, while still 
hot and plastic, shall be rolled with a self-propelled 
roller weighing not less than ten (10) tons. Natural 
hydraulic cement shall then be spread over the 
wearing course in such quantity that one (1) barrel 
of natural hydraulic cement shall cover one thous- 
and (1000) square yards of said wearing course. 
The said wearing course shall then be thoroughly 
compressed by rolling with a self-propelled roller 
weighing not less than ten (10) tons.

the purpose of this ordinance, levigated limestone, 
other levigated stone equivalent to levigated lime- 
stone for paving purposes, said Portland cement or 
the finely divided mineral matter self contained in 
the refined native solid asphalt. 

The refined asphalt used in making the asphalt 
cement for the mixture for the binder course and 
the mixture for the wearing course shall be obtained 
from crude, native solid asphalt, except as herein 
provided. If crude, native solid asphalt is used 
and requires refining, it shall be heated to a tem- 
perature of not over four hundred fifty (450) de- 
grees Fahrenheit until all water and light oils have 
been driven off. At least ninety-eight and one-half 
(98%) per cent of the bitumen contained in the 
said refined asphalt which is soluble in carbon 
disulphide shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra 
chloride.

meters penetration and not harder than two and one- 
half (2%) millimeters penetration, the penetration 
being made with a No. 2 needle, weighted with one 
hundred (100) grams acting for five (5) seconds on 
the material at a temperature of seventy-seven (77) 
degrees Fahrenheit. Ninety-eight and one-half (98y2j 
per cent of the said refined asphalt, so obtained, 
shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. When 
fifty (50) grams of said refined asphalt is heated in 



an uncovered tin box, five and one-half (5%) centi- 
meters in diameter and three and one-half (3%) 
centimeters in depth and is held at a temperature of 
three hundred twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit 
for five (5) hours, then it shall have lost not over two 

(2) per cent by weight and the penetration of the 
residue thus obtained shall be not less than one- 
half of the penetration before such heating, said 
penetration being determined as herein prescribed. 
The said refined asphalt shall have a ductility of not 
less than sixty (60) centimeters at five (5) milli- 
meters penetration determined as herein prescribed, 
said ductility being determined by elongating a 
briquette, Dow form, of said refined asphalt at a 
uniform rate of five (5) centimeters per minute at 
a temperature of seventy-seven (77) degrees 
Fahrenheit. 

The flux used in making the asphalt cement shall 
be the residuum obtained by the straight reduction 
of crude petroleum, which flux shall be tested with 
and found suitab'le to the refined asphalt to be 
used. At least ninety-nine (99) per cent of said flux 
shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. The 
flux shall have a specific gravity of not less than 
ninety-four one-hundredths (.94) and not more than 
one and ten one-hundredths (1.10) at seventy-seven 
(77) degrees Fahrenheit as compared with water 
at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit, and when 
tested in a Cleveland Open Cup Oil Tester, it shall 
not flash below a temperature of three hun- 
dred eighty (380) degrees Fahrenheit; and when 
fifty (50) grams of the said flux is heated 
in an uncovered tin box five and one-half (5%; 
centimeters in diameter and three and one- 
half {3V2) centimeters in depth and is held at 
a temperature of three hundred twenty-five 
(325) degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) hours, then 
it shall not have lost over three (3) per cent by 
weight. The fiux shall have a penetration of not 
less than thirty-five (35) millimeters, the penetration 
being made with a No. 2 needle weighted with fifty 
(50) grams acting for one second, the material being 
tested at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. 

The asphalt cement used in the binder course and 
in the wearing course shall be made from one (1) 
of said refined asphalts or from a mixture of any two 
of said refined asphalts and said flux, if flux must be 
used, provided that the mixture of refined asphalts 
shall contain equal parts of each of the refined 
asphalts; and that the said asphalt cement shall 
contain not less than sixty (60) per cent by weight 
of refined asphalt or asphalts. The said asphalt 
cement shall be made by mixing and heating the 
said refined asphalt or asphalts and the said flux 
in a kettle at a temperature not lower than two 
hundred fifty (250) degrees Fahrenheit and not 
higher than three hundred fifty (350) degrees 
Fahrenheit. This mixture shall be thoroughly 
agitated when hot by steam, air or mechanical 
means until the said mixture has become homo- 
geneous. The said asphalt cement shall have a 
penetration, determined as herein prescribed, of not 
less than two and one-half (2%) millimeters and not 
more than seven (7) millimeters. When fifty (50) 
grams of said asphalt cement is heated in an uncover- 
ed tin box five and one-half (51/2) centimeters in di- 
ameter and three and one-half (3%) centimeters in 
depth and is held at a temperature of three hundred 
twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) 
hours, then it shall have lost not more than three 

(3) per cent by weight, and the penetration, deter- 
mined as herein prescribed, shall be not less than 
one-half of the penetration before such heating. A

three (3) parts by volume of said sand used for 
making the concrete for the said concrete founda- 
tion, shall have, at the expiration of seven (7) days, 
an ultimate tensile strength of at least two hundred 
(200) pounds per square inch, after being exposed 
to the air for the first day and then submerged in 
water for the six (6) following days. 

The concrete for the said concrete foundation 
shall be made by mixing by volume one (1) part 
of said Portland cement, two (2) parts of said sand 
or two (2) parts of said limestone screenings and 
three and one-half (3%) parts of said limestone 
or other stone together with a proper amount of 
clean water in a rotary batch mixer until thoroughly 
mixed. The said mixture shall then be spread upon 
the surface of the roadbed prepared as herein pre- 
scribed and rammed until thoroughly compacted.

turo is spread shall be laid a wearing surface of 
Portland cement concrete three (3) inches in thick- 
ness, composed of one (1) part by volume of Port- 
land cement, two (2) parts of sand and three and 
one-half (3%) parts of crushed granite or trap rock. 
The Portland cement and the sand in said concrete 
shall be of the quality herein specified for the con- 
crete foundation. The crushed granite or trap rock 
shall be of the best quality, clean, free from dust, 
and graded as prescribed for the stone in the con- 
crete foundation.

ance with s|)ecilications for said types liennn con- 
tained, whichever type may be selected by the Board 
of Local Improvements after bids have been re- 
ceived on said types as provided by law. 

If asphalt pavement is used in this improvement 
tiie upper surface of said concrete foundation shall 
be parallel with and three and one-half (3%)) inches 
below the vipper surface of the finished asphalt 
pavement. The specifications for asphalt pavement 
are as folows: 

A binder course two (2) inches thick shall be laid 
upon said concrete foundation and between said 
gutters. 

A wearing- course one and one-half (1%) inches 
thick shall be laid upon said binder course. 

The sand or limestone screenings used in making 
the mixture for the binder course and the sand used 
in making the mixture for the wearing course shall 
be clean, hard-grained, free from foreign matter, 
and so graded that all of said sand or limestone 
screenings can pass a four (4) mesh sieve and so 
that not more than six (6) per cent can be held on 
a ten (10) mesh sieve, and so that not less than

(%) inch inside diameter. 

Levigated stone shall be construed to mean, for 
the purpose of this ordinance, levigated limestone, 
other levigated stone equivalent to levigated lime- 
stone for paving purposes, said Portland cement or 
the finely divided mineral matter self contained in 
the refined native solid asphalt. 

The refined asphalt used in making the asphalt 
cement for the mixture for the binder course and 
the mixture for the wearing course shall be obtained 
from crude, native solid asphalt, except as herein 
provided. If crude, native solid asphalt is used 
and requires refining, it shall be heated to a tem- 
perature of not over four hundred fifty (450) de- 
grees Fahrenheit until all water and light oils have 
been driven off. At least ninety-eight and one-half 
(QSVo) per cent of the bitumen contained in the 
said refined asphalt which is soluble in carbon 
disulphide shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra 
chloride. 

The refined asphalt used in making said asphalt 



cement may also be obtained by the straight reduc- 
tion of asplialtic petroleum until the refined asphalt 
has a consistency not softer than seven C7) milli- 
meters peiKftratioii and not hard(!r than two 
and one-half (2M;j miliimeiers penetration, the 
p(!netral ion iieing madi'. witli a No. 2 needle, 
weighted with one hundred (100) grams acting 
for five (5) seconds on the material at a 
temperature of seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahren- 
heit. Ninety-eight and one-half per cent 
of the said refined asphalt, so obtained, shall be 
soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. When fifty 
(50) grams of said refined asphalt is heated in an 
uncovered tin box, five and one-half (5%) centi- 
meters in diameter and three and one-half {3V2) 
centimeters in depth and is held at a temperature of 
three hundred twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit 
for five (5 hours, then it shall have lost not over two 
(2) per cent by weight and the penetration of the 
residue thus obtained shall be not less than one- 
half of the penetration before such heating, said 
penetration being determined as herein prescribed. 
The said refined asphalt shall have a ductility of not 
less than sixty (60) centimeters at five (5) milli- 
meters penetration determined as herein prescribed, 
said ductility being determined by elongating a 
briquette, Dow form, of said refined asphalt at a 
uniform rate of five (5) centimeters per minute at 
a temperature of seventy-seven (77) degrees 
Fahrenheit. 

The flux used in making the asphalt cement shall 
be the residuum obtained by the straight reduction 
of crude petroleum, which flux shall be tested with 
and found suitable to the refined asphalt to be 
used. At least ninety-nine (99) per cent of said flux 
shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. The 
flux shall have a specific gravity of not less than 
ninety-four one-hundredths (.94) and not more than 
one and ten one-hundredths (l.lfl) at seventy-seven 
(77) degrees Fahrenheit as compared with water 
at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit, and when 
tested in a Cleveland Open Cup Oil Tester, it shall 
not flash below a temperature of three hundred eighty 
(380) degrees Fahrenheit; and when fifty (50) 
grams of the said flux is heated in an uncovered tin 
box five and one-half (5%) centimeters in diameter 
and three and one-half (3%) centimeters in depth and 
is held at a temperature of three hundred twenty- 
five (325) degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) hours, 
then it shall not have lost over three (3) per cent by 
weight. The flux shall have a penetration of not 
less than thirty-five (35) millimeters, the penetration 
being made with a No. 2 needle weighted with fifty 
(50) grams acting for one second, the material being 
tested at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. 

The asphalt cement used in the binder couise and 
in the wearing course shall be made from one (1) 
of said refined asphalts or from a mixture of any two 
of said refined asphalts and said flux, if flux must be 
used, provided that the mixture of refined asphalts 
shall contain equal parts of each of the refined 
asphalts; and that the said asphalt cement shall 
contain not less than sixty (60) per cent by weight 
of refined asphalt or asphalts. The said asphalt 
cement shall be made by mixing and heating the 
said refined asphalt or asphalts and the said flux 
in a kettle at a temperature not lower than two 
hundred fifty (250) degrees Fahrenheit and not 
ihigher than three hundred fifty (350) degrees 
Fahrenheit. This mixture shall be thoroughly 
agitated when hot by steam, air or mechanical 
means until the said mixture has become homo- 
geneous. The said asphalt cement shall have a 
penetration, determined as herein prescribed, of not 
less than two and one-half (2%) millimeters

tiegrees Fahrenheit as compared with water at 
seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit; and when 
lested in a Cleveland Open Cup Oil Testei', it shall 
not flash below a temperature of Ihrec; hundred 
eighty (380) degi'ces Fahrenheit, and wIkmi fifty 
(50) grams of the said Ilux is heated in an un- 
covered tin box five and one-half (5%) centimeters 
in diameter and three and one-half (SVs) centi- 
meters in depth and is held at a temperature of 
three hundred twenty-five (.325) degrees Fahrenheit 
for five (5) hours, then it shall not have lost over 
three (3) per cent by weight. The flux shall have 
a penetration of not less than thirty-five (35) milli- 
meters, the penetration being made with a No. 2 
needle weighted with fifty (50) grams acting lor 
one second, the material being tested at seventy-

oughly mixed. The said concrete shall the be spread 
upon "ihe surface of the roadbed prepared as herein 
prescribed and rammed until thoroughly compacted. 
The upper surface of said concrete foundation shall 
bo parallel with and three and one-half (3%) inches 
below the upper surface of the finished pavement. 

A binder course two (2) inches thick shall be laid 
upon said concrete foundation. 

A wearing course one and one-half (11/2) inches 
thick shall be laid upon said binder course. 

The sand or limestone screenings used in making 
the mixture for the binder course and the sand used 
in making the mixture for the wearing course shall 
be clean, hard-grained, free from foreign matter, 
and so graded that all of said sand or limestone 
screenings can pass a four (4) mesh sieve and so 
that not more than six (6) per cent can be held on 
a ten (10) mesh sieve, and so that not less than

Levigated stone shall be construed to mean, for 
the purpose of this ordinance, levigated limestone, 
other levigated stone equivalent to levigated lime- 
stone for paving purposes, said Portland cement or 
the finely divided mineral matter self contained in 
the refined native solid asphalt. 

The refined asphalt used in making the asphalt 
cement for the mixture for the binder course and 
the mixture for the wearing course shall be obtained 
from crude, native solid asphalt, except as herein 
provided. If crude, native solid asphalt is used 
and requires refining, it shall be heated to a tem- 
perature of not over four hundred fifty (450) de- 
grees Fahrenheit until all water and light oils have 
been driven off. At least ninety-eight and one-half 
(98%) per cent of the bitumen contained in the 
said refined asphalt which is soluble in carbon 
disulphide shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra 
chloride. 

The refined asphalt used in making said asphalt 
cement may also be obtained by the straight reduc- 
tion of asphaltic petroleum until the refined asphalt 
has a consistency not softer than seven (7) milli- 
meters penetration and not harder than two and one- 
half {2V2) millimeters penetration, the penetration 
being made with a No. 2 needle, weighted with one 
hundred (100) grams acting for five (5) seconds on 
the material at a temperature of seventy-seven (77) 



degi'ces l''ahiM!nli('it. Ninety-eight and on(!-half (98 Vi) 
per cent of the said refined asphalt, so obtained, 
shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. When 
fifty (50) grams of said refined asphalt is heated in 
an uncovered tin box, five and one-half (S'/i) centi- 
meters in diameter and three and one-half (3%) 
centimeters in depth and is held at a temperature of 
three hundred twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit 
for five (5) hours, then it shall have lost not over two 

(2) per cent by weight and the penetration of the 
residue thus obtained shall be not less than one- 
half of the penetration before such heating, said 
penetration being determined as herein prescribed. 
The said refined asphalt shall have a ductility of not 
less than sixty (60) centimeters at five (5) milli- 
meters penetration determined as herein prescribed, 
said ductility being determined by elongating a 
briquette, Dow form, of said refined asphalt at a 
uniform rate of five (5) centimeters per minute at 
a temperature of seventy-seven (77) degrees 
Fahrenheit. 

The flux used in making the asphalt cement shall 
be the residuum obtained by the straight reduction 
of crude petroleum, which flux shall be tested with 
and found suitable to the refined asphalt to be 
used. At least ninety-nine (99) per cent of said flux 
shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. The 
flux shall have a -specific gravity of not less than 
ninety-four one-hundredths (.94) and not more than 
one and ten one-hundredths (1.10) at seventy-seven 
(77) degrees Fahrenheit as compared with water 
at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit, and when 
tested in a Cleveland Open Cup Oil Tester, it shall 
not flash below a temperature of three hundred 
eighty (380) degrees Fahrenheit; and when fifty (50) 
grams of the said flux is heated in an uncovered tin 
box five and one-half (51/2) centimeters in diameter 
and three and one-half (3%) centimeters in depth and 
is held at a temperature of three hundred twenty- 
five (325) degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) hours, then 
it shall not have lost over three (3) per cent by 
weight. The flux shall have a penetration of not 
less than thirty-five (35) millimeters, the penetration 
being made with a No. 2 needle weighted with fifty 
(50) grams acting for one second, the material being 
tested at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. 

The asphalt cement used in the binder course and 
in the wearing course shall be made from one (1) 
of said refined asphalts or from a mixture of any two 
of said refined asphalts and said flux, if flux must be 
used, provided that the mixture of refined asphalts 
shall contain equal parts of each of the refined 
asphalts; and that the said asphalt cement shall 
contain not less than sixty (60) per cent by weight 
of refined asphalt or asphalts. The said asphalt 
cement shall be made by mixing and heating the 
said refined asphalt or asphalts and the said flux 
in a kettle at a temperature not lower than two 
hundred fifty (250) degrees Fahrenheit and not 
ihigher than three hundred fifty (350) degrees 
Fahrenheit. This mixture shall l3e thoroughly 
agitated when bot by steam, air or mechanical 
means until the said mixture has become homo- 
geneous. The said asphalt cement shall have a 
penetration, determined as herein prescribed, of not 
less than two and one-half (2%) millimeters and not 
more than seven (7) millimeters. When fifty (50 
grams of said asphalt cement is heated in an uncov- 
ered tin box five and one-half (5%) centimeters in 
diameter and three and one-half (3%) centimeters in 
depth and is held at a temperature of three hundred 
twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) 
hours, then it shall have lost not more than three 

(3) per cent by weight, and the penetration, deter-

one-half of the penetration before such heating, A 
briquette, Dow form, of the said asphalt cement of 
the consistency as used in this improvement shall 
have a ductility, determined as herein prescribed, 
of not less than twenty (20) centimeters. 

The mixture for the binder course shall be made 
by heating and intimately mixing the said limestone, 
or other stone, the said sand or the said lime- 
stone screenings and the said asphalt cement. The 
said mixture shall contain by weight five (5) per 
cent of bitumen soluble in carbon disulphide; 
twenty-five (25) per cent of said sand or said lime- 
stone screenings and seventy (70) per cent of said 
limestone, or other stone. The said mixture 
shall be spread on the said concrete foundation, and 
while in a hot and plastic condition shall be rolled 
to an even surface with a self-propelled roller 
weighing not less than ten (10) tons. The said binder 
course after ultimate compression shall have a 
thickness of two (2) inches, and the upper surface 
shall be parallel with and one and one-half {IV2) 
inches below the upper surface of the finished pave- 
ment. 

The mixture for the wearing course shall be 
made by intimately mixing, while hot, the said sand, 
the said asphalt cement and the said levigated stone. 
The said sand and the said asphalt cement shall be 
■heated separately to a temperature of not less than 
three hundred (300) degrees Fahrenheit, and the 
said levigated stone shall be intimately mixed with 
the said sand and then both shall be intimately mixed 
with the said asphalt cement. The said mixture 
shall contain, by weight, bitumen soluble in carbon 
disulphide eleven (11) per cent; said levigated stone 
fourteen (14) per cent; said sand which can pass an 
eighty (80) mesh sieve and cannot pass a two hun- 
dred (200) mesh sieve twenty-five (25) per cent; said

cannot pass an eighty (80) mesh sieve thirty-six 
(36) per cent; said sand which can pass a ten (10) 
mesh sieve and cannot pass a forty (40) mesh sieve 
twelve (12) per cent; said sand which can pass a 
four (4) mesh sieve and cannot pass a ten (10) 
mesh sieve two (2) per cent. The said mixture shall 
be spread at a temperature of not less than two 
hundred sixty (260) degrees Fahrenheit to an even 
surface and to such a depth that after ultimate com- 
pression, it shall have a thickness of one and one- 
half (1%) inches. The wearing course, while still 
hot and plastic, shall be rolled with a self-propelled 
roller weighing not less than ten (10) tons. Natural 
hydraulic cement shall then be spread over the 
wearing course in such quantity that one (1) barrel 
of natural hydraulic cement shall cover one thous- 
and (1000) square yards of said wearing course. 
The said wearing course shall then be thoroughly 
compressed by rolling with a self-propelled roller 
weighing not less than ten (10) tons. 

A foundation of Portland cement concrete six (6) 
inches thick shall be laid upon the roadbed thus 
prepared between the curbs on said West 101st street 
from said straight line connecting the northwest and 
southwest corners of Longwood drive to the easterly 
curb line produced southerly of South Winchester 
avenue. Said concrete shall be of the same kind 
and quality as herein provided for concrete founda- 
tion under asphalt pavement, and upon said concrete 
foundation shall be spread a layer of sand two (2) 
inches in depth, upon which shall be laid sandstone 
blocks of the best quality, having a uniform grain 
and texture without lamination or stratification, and 
free from quarry sap. Soft or weather worn blocks 
or those obtained from the surface of the quarry 



must not be used. The blocks shall be made from 
layers of stone not less than two (2) feet in thick- 
ness. When tested according to the standard meth- 
ods of the Department of Agriculture of the United 
States Government, the blocks shall show crushing

streets and alleys extended from the curb line to 
the street line produced on each side of said West 
107th street between said points (except the inter- 
section of Longwood drive and also except steam 
railroad rights of way) shall be so graded and com- 
pacted by puddling and rolling with a roller of ten 
(10) tons weight until the roadbeds are thoroughly 
compacted that after the pavement herein described 
is placed thereon, the surface of the pavement at 
the center of the finished roadway of said West 
107th street and at the center of the finished road- 
ways of all intersecting streets shall be at the ele- 
\ation of center of roadway herein described; and 
the surface of the said finished pavement at the 
summits in the gutters between catchbasins and ad- 
joining the roadway face of the curbing shall be 
two (2) inches below the top of said curbing and 
the surface of the finished pavement at the catch- 
basin inlets in the gutters adjoining the roadway 
face of the curbing shall be eight (8) inches below 
the top of said curbing. The slope of the gutters 
adjoining the roadway face of said curbing shall be 
uniform from the summits to the catchbasin inlets, 
and a transverse section of the finished surface of 
the pavement and gutters shall be an arc of a circle 
passing through the said gutter elevations and the 
elevation of the center of said finished roadway, at 
every part of the roadway of said West 107th street 
and at every part of the roadways of all intersecting 
streets between said points. 

In all intersecting alleys herein specified at the 
street lines produced of said West 107th street, the 
surface of the finished pavement adjoining the 
curbing shall be even with the top of the curbing, 
and the surface of the finished pavement at the 
center of the roadway of said alleys shall be three 
(3) inches below the top of the curbing, and a 
transverse section of the finished surface of the 
pavement at the street lines produced of said West 
107th street shall be an arc of a circle passing 
through the surface of the pavement adjoining said 
curbing and the surface of the pavement at the 
center of said finished roadways. The surface of 
the said pavement thence shall slope gradually to 
meet the gutters herein specified. 

A foundation of Portland cement concrete eight 
(8) inches thick shall be laid upon the roadbed thus 
prepared, between said points and between said 
gutters. 

The sand used in making concrete for the said 
concrete foundation shall be clean and sharp, free 
from dust, dirt and other impurities, and may con- 
tain not more than three (3) per cent of clay or 
loam, and graded so that not less than ninety-five

inches inside diameter, and not less than forty (40) 
per cent nor more than seventy (70) per cent can 
pass a ring of three-fourths (%) inch inside 
diameter, and not more than ten (10) per cent can 
pass a ring of one-fourth (%) inch inside diameter. 

The Portland cement used in this improvement 
shall be ground so that ninety-two (92) per cent 
can pass a one hundred (100) mesh sieve, and shall 
be of such quality that briquettes made of a mortar 
composed of a proper amount of clean water, one 
(1) part by volume of said Portland cement and 
three (3) parts by volume of said sand used for 
making the concrete for the said concrete foun- 
dation, shall have, at the expiration of seven (7) 
days, an ultimate tensile strength of at least two 
hundred (200) pounds per square inch, after being 
exposed to the air for the first day and then sub- 
merged in water for the six (6) following days. 

The concrete for the said concrete foundation 
shall be made by mixing by volume one (1) part 
of said Portland cement, three (3) parts of said 
sand or three (3) parts of said limestone screenings 
and six (6) parts of said limestone or other stone, 
together with a proper amount of clean water in a 
rotary batch mixer until the resulting concrete has 
been thoroughly mixed. The said concrete shall 
then be spread upon the surface of the roadbed 
prepared as herein prescribed and rammed until 
thoroughly compacted. The upper surface of said 
concrete foundation shall be parallel with and three 
and one-half (3%) inches below the upper surface 
of the finished pavement, except from the westerly 
line of Longwood drive to the east line of South 
Seeley avenue produced south, where the upper 
surface of said concrete foundation shall be parallel 
with and seven (7) inches below the upper surface 
of the finished pavement. 

A binder course two (2) inches thick shall be 
laid upon said concrete foundation (except from the 
westerly line of Longwood drive to the east line of 
South Seeley avenue produced south). 

A wearing surface one and one-half (1%) inches 
in thickness shall be laid upon said binder course. 

The sand or limestone screenings used in making 
the mixture for the binder course and the sand used 
in making the mixture for the wearing course shall 
be clean, hard-grained, free from foreign matter, 
and so graded that all of said sand or limestone 
screenings can pass a four (4) mesh sieve and so 
that not more than six (6) per cent can be held on 
a ten (10) mesh sieve, and so that not less than 
eight (8) per cent nor more than twenty-five (25) 
per cent can pass a ten (10) mesh sieve and be 
held on a forty (40) mesh sieve, and so that not 
less than thirty (30) per cent nor more than flfty- 
six (56) per cent can pass a forty (40) mesh sieve 
and be held on an eighty (80) mesh sieve, and so 
that no less than twenty (20) per cent nor more 
than forty-five (45) per cent can pass an eighty (80) 
mesh sieve. 

The limestone or other stone used in the mix- 
ture for the binder course shall be clean, broken, 
hard and durable, free from foreign matter and so 
graded that all can pass a ring of one and one-half 
(1%) inches inside diameter and eighty (80) per 
cent thereof can be held on a ring of one-fourth 
(%) inch inside diameter. 

Levigated stone shall be construed to mean, for 
the purpose of this ordinance, levigated limestone, 
other levigated stone equivalent to levigated lime- 
stone for paving purposes, said Portland cement or 
the finely divided mineral matter self contained in 
the refined native solid asphalt. 



The refined asphalt used in making the asphalt 
cement for the mixture for the binder course and 
the mixture for the wearing course shall be obtained 
from crude, native solid asphalt, except as herein 
provided. If crude, native solid asphalt is used 
and requires refining, it shall be heated to a tem- 
perature of not over four hundred fifty (450) de- 
grees Fahrenheit until all water and light oils have 
been driven off. At least ninety-eight and one-half 
(98%) per cent of the bitumen contained in the 
said refined asphalt which is soluble in carbon 
disulphide shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra 
chloride. 

The refined asphalt used in making said asphalt 
cement may also be obtained by the straight reduc- 
tion of asphaltic petroleum until the refined asphalt 
has a consistency not softer than seven (7) milli- 
meters penetration and not harder than two and 
one-half (2%) millimeters penetration, the pene- 
tration being made with a No. 2 needle, weighted 
with one hundred (100) grams acting for five 
(5) seconds on the material at a temperature 
of seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. Ninety- 
eight and one-half (981/2) per cent of the said 
refined asphalt, so obtained, shall be soluble in 
cold carbon tetra chloride. When fifty (50) grams 
of said refined asphalt is heated in an un- 
covered tin box, five and one-half (51/2) centi- 
meters in diameter and three and one-half (3%j 
centimeters in depth and is held at a temperature of 
three hundred twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit 
for five (5) hours, then it shall have lost not over 
two (2) per cent by weight and the penetration of the 
residue thus obtained shall be not less than one- 
half of the penetration before such heating, said 
penetration being determined as herein prescribed. 
The said refined asphalt shall have a ductility of not 
less than sixty (60) centimeters at five (5) milli- 
meters penetration determined as herein prescribed, 
said ductility being determined by elongating a 
briquette, Dow form, of said refined asphalt at a 
uniform rate of five (5) centimeters per minute at 
a temperature of seventy-seven (77) degrees 
Fahrenheit. 

The flux used in making the asphalt cement shall 
be the residuum obtained by the straight reduction 
of crude petroleum, which flux shall be tested with 
and found suitable to the refined asphalt to be 
used. At least ninety-nine (99) per cent of said flux 
shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. The 
flux shall have a specific gravity of not less than 
ninety-four one-hundredths (.94) and not more than 
one and ten one-hundredths (1.10) at seventy-seven 
(77) degrees Fahrenheit as compared with water 
at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit, and when

meters penetration and not harder than two and 
one-half (2%) millimet(!rs penetration, the pene- 
tration being made with a No, 2 needle, weighted with 
one hundred (100) grams acting for five (5) sec- 
onds on tlie material at a temperature of seventy- 
seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. Ninety-eight, and 
one-half (98%) per cent of the said refined asphalt, 
so obtained, shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra 
chloride. When fifty (50) grams of said refined 
asphalt is heated in an uncovered tin box five and 
one-half (51/2) centimeters in diameter and three 
and one-half (3%) centimeters in depth and is held 
at a temperature of three hundred twenty-five (325) 
degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) hours, then it shall 
have lost not over two (2) per cent by weight and 
the penetration of the residue thus obtained shall be 
not less than one-half of the penetration before such 
heating said penetration being determined as here- 
in prescribed. The said refined asphalt shall have 
a ductility of not less than sixty (60) centimeters at 
five (5) millimeters penetration determined as here- 
in prescribed, said ductility being determined by 
elongating a briquette, Dow form, of said refined 
asphalt at a uniform rate of five (5) centimeters per 
minute at a temperature of seventy-seven (77) de- 
grees Fahrenheit.

be soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. The flux 
shall have a specific gravity of not less than ninety- 
four one-hundredths (.94) and not more than one 
and ton one-hundredths (1.10) at seventy-seven (77) 
degrees Fahrenheit as compared with water at sev- 
enty-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit; and when tested 
in a Cleveland Open Cup Oil Tester, it shall not flash 
below a temperature of three hundred and eighty 
(380) degrees Fahrenheit; and when flfty (50) grams 
of the said flux is heated in an uncovered tin box 
five and one-half (51/2) centimeters in diameter and 
three and one-half (3%) centimeters in depth and is 
held at a temperature of three hundred and twenty- 
five (325) degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) hours, 
then it shall not have lost over three (3) per cent by 
weight. The flux shall have a penetration of not less 
than thirty-flve (35) millimeters, the penetration 
being made with a No. 2 needle weighted with fifty 
(50) grams acting for one second, the material being 
tested at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. 

The asphalt cement used in the wearing course 
shall be made from one of said refined asphalts or 
from a mixture of any two of said refined asphalts 
and said flux, if flux must bo usod, provided that tho 
mixture of refined asphalts shall contain equal parts 
of each of the refined asphalts; and that the said 
asphalt cement shall contain not less than sixty (60) 
por cent by weight of refined asphalt or asphalts. 
The said asphalt cement shall be made by mixing 
and heating the said refined asphalt or asphalts and
